clockAt times, you find yourself in a huge hurry. You hurry your caree along, hoping to make finish morning personal care before lunch. You hurry yourself along, so you'll be home in time to relieve the home health aide. You hurry the day along, so you can spend as little time as possible doing what you dread.

You need time.

It's a hurry until it all goes too fast. Another diagnosis. More treatments. Different medications. And, now they hurry you through a process and into a decision you're not ready to make.

You need time.

As time ticks, we lose it. We can't bank it or store it. We can't hold it in our hands with the idea that we'll use it on a day that doesn't have enough time. It's finite.

And, yet, it's expected. Each day, we wake to knowing how much time we have in each day. Because we can't know how much time we'll have in our life, we can use the known time in our day wisely. When others go too fast, ask them to slow. When the day goes too slow, ramp it up by adding a meaningful activity. When the day seems to speed by, stop and take stock.

Most important, consider what you're hurrying through. Rather than hurrying, make memories. The memories last forever.
